If you were 220 there, and you came to USA and were able to plug it into a 110 wall outlet, it would probably still run, and not hurt anything on it, just because we would be so much lower in voltage than you. If so it would be running slower though. But, the wall plug receptacles are also probably different in that ours are two flat blades, and yours might be two round prongs instead? So you might have another issue there too.
Also know that most people in the USA, actually do have some 220 current and a 220 outlet in their house, if they have a house, like maybe in their laundry room or Garage, just because a lot of USA clothes dryers that are electric or some other equipment in their garage, might actually even take 220 current sometimes. If you got a fuse box, maybe look there to see if you got that anyplace, even right now. Running your 210 or 220 overlocker while sitting on top of your clothes dryer in your laundry room, if needed though, might get old real fast.
If not, there are always transformers and stuff to piggy back in between things too.
If you mean are there any secret hidden switches in there, you would not see from the outside of it and they would not tell you about in your instruction book, that you are supposed to flip a switch on or something, if you move from one place to another, then I think not. If so, they would tell you in your instruction book. They would just make and sell a machine in the correct current from where you bought it from, for to use someplace likewise. You could always take all the covers off and look, but I don't think you are going to find any.
